Orlando guard Jason Richardson was a late scratch from the Magic starting lineup against Miami on Sunday with what the team says is chest pain. The cause of the pain was not immediately clear. A Magic spokesman says Richardson is with the team and in the arena, and indicated that the problem is not believed to be serious. Orlando started J.J. Redick in Richardson's place. Richardson was listed in the starting lineup that Magic coach Stan Van Gundy submitted before the game, and Richardson was in the team's locker room getting ready as usual about an hour before tipoff. Richardson is averaging 12.2 points in 26 games this season for Orlando.
